Philosophical Fridays: Are We Still of Any Use?-the Emerged Field of Religion and Animals
April 7, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Many Mississippians today have had scant exposure to genuine philosophical inquiry and debate and know little about philosophy’s long, distinguished history. Even those who may have taken a philosophy course in college likely studies only selected topics and have a limited sense of the wide range of issues philosophers discuss. As a result, many people think of philosophy merely as an abstract intellectual pursuit with little relevance to everyday affairs of their lives.
In response, the Department of Philosophy and Religion at USM is continuing its popluar “Philosophical Fridays” speakers series in the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017. The series features respected philosophers giving presentations on a variety of issues. Their talks will be non-technical and readily accessible, of students, faculty, and community members. These events will take place at 2:00p.m. on Fridays in the Liberal Arts Building on the Hattiesburg Campus. The topics will range from a discussion about linguistic violence, ethics in a pluralistic world, and free will, to moral psychology.
